TURBO CUPS - The Legend of A Pastoral Game
Turbo Cups had its beginnings in 1941.
The legend of the game comes to us from renowned physicist Dick "Doubleday" Granger who was working in his laboratory in the upper east side of Bellwood, IL.
While sipping a pint, he knocked over several large mouthed beekers off of a tall shelf. What happened next fueled the seeds of creation as he saw that some beekers had stayed upright after they had flipped onto a nearby table. The physics behind this revelations were staggering. The US Government seeked Granger out, after hearing about his discovery to develop war technology based on his findings. Alas, Doubleday refused to aid the USA and was smited for many years to come. Dick would use this technology for the betterment and well being of society. He would create a wonderful game based on his studies. Which would be known as TURBO CUPS. (Turbous Cuptorus)
After the initial findings, he worked out a formula for flipping plastic cups after breaking several glass containers. These proved to be much more efficient.
He also found, that if you drink the liquid out of the cup before flipping it, the contents would not spill all over your shoes. Utter brillance.
He developed the early version of "TURBO CUPS" for many years, always in competition with Douche Naismith Flipcharles, who was rumored to have founded a similar but lamer game known as "FLIPPY CUPS". The two would battle for supremacy over the cup flipping gaming industry for years to come.

Douche Naismith Flipcharles

While it was not proven, Flipcharles was said to have been a NAZI sympathizer during the war, giving Hitler "Flippy Cup" Technology. You can see here such evidence to that end. However, to this day, the "Flipcharles Estate" has denied any such wrongdoings.

Did Adolf Hitler use Flipcharles' technology?

Dick continued his work even in the prescense of a more successful adversary. Douche Flipcharles' game proved to be for the casual crowd, while the more hardcore needed the "Doubleday" version of the game.
However Dick struggled to fine tune his version over his many years. He searched for inspiration on the ultimate technique and style of play in many locales, hoping to find the perfect rules and style.

Perfecting the Game

Dick reached his milestone in the Fall of 1994, where he achieved the perfect version of the game which rules are shown below. Unfortunately, right after his finalized version became widespread, he was attacked by a grizzly bear in Northern Canada while fishing. He survived the attack... for about 28 seconds. He was given the Noble Prize on behalf of his work and is considered a friend to our membership.
Long Live Granger.
Long Live Turbo Cups.
